12/05/2013, Giving a body part in order to obtain something is an activity we certainly wouldn’t want to partake in, although there are people in the world who would gladly give something up for the latest and greatest piece of tech. A few years ago, we saw a teenager selling his kidney for an iPad 2, and today, we’re seeing a grown man offer his testicle for a Nissan 370Z.
12/05/2013, One of the main benefits to owning an electric car is the fact that you can hook up your vehicle to an outlet in order to juice it up, which is certainly more convenient than having to find a gas station to fill up your vehicle with fuel. But in the case of this story, the convenience of being able to hook up your electric car to any outlet got […]
12/03/2013, When it comes to iOS integration in vehicles, Honda seems to be pretty enthusiastic about the whole thing, having adopted Siri Eyes Free earlier this year, and just last week we heard that the car manufacturer had plans to introduce some sort of iOS mirroring feature in future car models as well. Turns out the reports were right as Honda has officially announced that the 2014 Honda Civic model and […]
12/03/2013, Commuters know how bad things can get if they happen to travel on a bus, subway or train to get to and from work. It seems you’re not the only person traveling on a particular line, which makes cramped commutes something all commuters experience on a regular basis. But a new vest is helping riders keep their personal space while they commute. The name of the vest? Spike Away.
12/03/2013, We have seen the Amazon Cloud Player launched for the PC platform sometime in the middle of this year, before it makes its way over to the Mac platform a few months down the road. Well, is that the end of the Amazon Cloud Player? Not really, as we now hear today that the Amazon Cloud Player is now made available on both the BMW and Mini Cooper. Drivers of […]
12/03/2013, If you use a bicycle on a daily basis, you know just how much energy can be harnessed from simply riding your bike, although many of us just use them to get from point A to point B. That’s all about to change as a startup based out of Cambridge, Massachusetts has began selling its Copenhagen Wheel that may introduce new ways for bike riders to use their favorite mode […]
12/02/2013, Your other half might claim that he or she will move mountains just for you, but seriously, how are they going to do so? At least if they tell you that they will climb up to your apartment window every night to blow butterfly kisses onto your cheek, that might be more doable – especially when the conceptual Mobiliant ride comes to pass. The Mobiliant is the brainchild of SAIC […]
12/02/2013, Self-driving cars, that seems to be the dream of many a driver worldwide, especially for those of us who happen to get caught in traffic jams every single work day of the week. Traffic jams are stressful, and how about those long road trips that require you to be extremely alert since danger can be around the corner at any time? Doze off for a while, and it could be […]
12/01/2013, We have seen our fair share of conceptual cars in the past, but this time around, this particular conceptual car is something worth checking out, although I don’t think that it would be too practical in places like the desert or in hot tropical countries. At China’s Guangzhou Auto Show, the WitStar happened to be a fully autonomous vehicle that comes with swiveling front seats, accompanied by massive gullwing doors […]
11/28/2013, While rain gauges are a good way to measure rainfall, the fact of the matter is that they can’t be placed everywhere, meaning that there will be areas where researchers might not have data on. In a bid to better understand rainfall in general, researchers from the University of Hanover in Germany have launched an initiative called RainCars, which basically takes advantage of cars with built-in GPS to measure rainfall […]
11/26/2013, Google Street View recently introduced us to the canals and streets of Venice, Italy, but if you’re one of millions of Americans traveling this week to partake in Thanksgiving festivities, you’re going to need to familiarize yourself with airports and train stations you’ll be visiting. Google has got you covered as the company has announced they have launched an interactive map that features Street Views of over 65 mass transit […]
11/24/2013, Earlier this year it was announced that Honda would be getting some iOS integration in its vehicles with the Siri Eyes Free feature, which basically allowed drivers to activate and use Siri through the car’s controls, as opposed to actually having to hold the device which could be dangerous. Well it looks like Honda’s integration will be taken one step further, and according to reports, Honda is set to make […]
11/21/2013, We’ve seen Chinese space capsule hotels which includes your own robot butler, but driving there in a regular vehicle is something that will probably take you out of the entire experience. Thankfully, Japan has come along with their own space bus that looks like you’ve stepped into a futuristic spacecraft.
11/21/2013, Recently we heard how aviation regulatory bodies, such as the FAA and EASA started to allow passengers to use their personal electronic devices (PED) from gate to gate, meaning that you wouldn’t have to turn off your MP3 player, tablet, smartphone, etc., during the takeoff and landing phases of the flight like you normally would. Of course this would also require airline companies to hop on board with the new […]
